Award-nominated kebab shop fined 60,000 by Home Office

Two SE1 businesses appear on the Home Office's latest list of businesses facing civil penalties: Capital Kebab House in The Cut and Londis at 53 Borough High Street.

The Home Office regularly publishes lists of employers who have received penalties for employing staff who do not have the right to work in the UK.

The 60,000 penalty for Capital Kebab House is the largest amount owed to the Home Office of any of the businesses appearing on the London & South East England list for April to September 2018.

Earlier this month we reported that Capital Kebab House has been shortlisted in the London takeaway category of the British Kebab Awards.

Shahid Akhtar of the Londis store at 53 Borough High Street received a 20,000 penalty.
